I Met a HUGE Goal Today!

I have some GREAT news to share today! I have been working hard since late last June and I have officially LOST 65 POUNDS as of this morning! Last night, my husband and I decided to take a trip to Florida this April and I just found out that, although I have clothing for the fall and winter months, I have nothing to wear for the spring and summer! None of my shorts or summer tops fit me anymore! I have to go shopping before this trip to get something to wear! I intend to shop while down there as we will be there for a week so I will be able to bring back a fair amount of stuff on my customs exemption, but I have to have something to wear for at least a few days... 
I still have about 10-12 pounds to lose and the goal is to lose that by the time Convention rolls around in July, if not a little sooner.That last bit is the hardest... 

For all of you who are working on a weight loss goal, it IS possible. I did without a formal program - simply by portion control, drinking lots of water and daily walking (60 minutes a day with my doggie). And I did it SLOWLY - that's the key. You don't need to spend a lot of money on a formal program to make it happen. Most people end up dropping out of those programs anyways because they are so restrictive in most cases. I have been able to eat away from home without much difficulty whereas most people on a "plan" have a terrible time with that aspect of their diet. I would be happy to answer any questions - feel free to email me if you want. All I can tell you is that I feel 100% better with more energy, more confidence and I am loving the "new me"!


  1. CONGRATS! That is awesome! Have fun in Florida.

  2. Wow Alyson! 65 lbs!!! That's fantastic! Enjoy your trip to deserve to treat yourself after accomplishing so much!

  3. A big CONGRATS! to you. Have fun shopping and on vacation!

  4. Alyson, that is just amazing! And such a huge achievement - especially since you've done it all yourself. Congrats!
